Before Christmas I think it is safe to say that I was driving most of my friends and family mad because I had realised that I didn't want to a pursue a career in my degree field (Zoology with Conservation) but the problem was I had no idea what it was I wanted to do instead. Ever since I was little I had wanted to be a Vet but when it came to A- Levels I realised I wasn't going to get the grades needed for that and so opted for Zoology instead.
Don't get me wrong I do enjoy my subject and degree, I just don't have the passion and strive for Conservation anymore which I feel is essential in such a field!!! After a lot of soul searching I have decided that I would love to be a Primary School teacher which means applying for my PGCE in November. This might sound like a while away but as I have only just decided to pursue a career in teaching I have limited experience and therefore need to spend the next seven months making my application as strong as possible.
I feel like such a weight has been lifted off of my shoulders now that I finally have a career direction and I have something to aim towards. Since deciding on my future career I have found that I have been much more motivated in doing my work as I want to have the best degree possible to put on my application.
Have you decided what it is you want to do in life yet?
